Being a woman is one thing. Embracing, accepting, and using your full potential as a female is another.
Throughout the past centuries, womanhood has become associated with weakness, sacrifice, powerlessness, co-dependency, over-sensitivity, and over-emotionality. We now live in a society where feminine energy is not glorified but rather suppressed, and that demands more masculine energy in us to operate, belong, and be accepted. In other words, it’s a man’s world.
This masculine energy translates to qualities like drive, independence, aggression, arrogance, competitiveness, and confidence, which are required to succeed in today’s world. These are not bad traits per se, and there is no denying that we need them. Indeed, they may have allowed women to become CEOs and leaders, but they have also led to us losing touch with our real power – our real magic, if you will. Because we’ve prioritized masculine over feminine energy, the key to this puzzle is balance; it is achieving harmony between these two types of energies.
Are you aware of the powerful and magical energy you carry within you? If the answer is no, it’s time for you to activate and awaken this immense, creative, joyful, playful, pure, and open force starting today.
I invite you to express gratitude for having been born female, to explore the powers of your feminine energy, and to discover how you can positively impact the whole universe by being a real woman. Read on for six ways to awaken and tap into your feminine energy.
Be open to receiving.
As women, we have the power to receive, amplify, and give back. Give a woman love and she will return it tenfold. Give a woman hate, and we all know what happens.
Allow yourself to receive more. Ask for favors and support when you need it, get yourself gifts, pamper yourself, and make receiving a vital part of your experience.
Eat and wear more orange.
Orange is the color of our sacral chakra, the second chakra of our energy system, which is the vessel of our feminine energy. Surrounding ourselves more with the frequency of this color by eating and wearing more orange allows the harmony and balance of this sacred energy to be improved.
Feminine energy is not about achieving; it’s about co-creating, which involves more flow, more fun, more music, more gentleness, more creativity, and more collaboration to reach the same results.
Make pleasure your priority.
As women, we have a huge impact on everyone around us, so making this planet a better place begins with us. Your responsibility is therefore to be a ray of light in the life of others. This is something that needs to be nurtured by you, and doing more of what makes you really happy will help you get to a place where you can bring happiness into other people’s lives.
Enjoy the physical pleasures in life.
Your body is a temple; it is the only way to bring new life into this world and should therefore be treated as such. Do things that feel good physically. Such pleasures related to feminine energy are massages, yoga, low-impact training, dancing, and any kind of free-flowing movement classes.
Activate and allow your playful side to be seen.
Being a woman is all about bringing a special spark and a sense of mystery with you wherever you go! This can be achieved effortlessly by just being playful, joyful, positive, and light.
Remember that, as a woman, your feminine energy is always there, even if you can’t feel it. It just needs to be reawakened. It’s an energy that will make you intuitive, compassionate, creative, sensitive, receptive, tender, kind, radiant, nurturing, and – most importantly – unstoppable!
